St John Bread and WineSt John Bread and Wine in Spitalfields is the sister restaurant to Fergus Henderson's original (Michelin starred) 'nose-to-tail' restaurant, the celebrated St John next to Smithfield Market. The second restaurant, with the biblical sounding name of St John Bread and Wine, expanded from humble beginnings as a bakery into a fully fledged restaurant in 2003. The Bread and Wine restaurant is less formal and a little cheaper than the original St John, but still focuses on offal, foraged vegetables, and wonderful dishes to share including whole roasts which need to be ordered in advance. As the title suggests, baked goods and fermented grapes are specialities with fresh from the oven dough-based goodies sold on the premises. The wine list is all French covering the full spectrum from everyday drinking like Vin de Pays Cotes de Gascogne to a truly great biodynamic bottle of 1996 Ermitage from Northern Rhone. What started as a wine cellar for the restaurant has now become a supplier to fellow restaurants, private clients and members of the public with the exclusive bottles they sell perfectly complementing their food philosophy.
